Looking for a natural skincare ingredient that holds a host of fantastic benefits, is available locally to you, and is not only gentle and nourishing but effective enough to soothe dry skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and even sun damaged skin? We’re talking about goat’s milk.
The use of cow’s milk is so prevalent in everyday life, so it’s no surprise that people’s interests have turned to the use of other dairy products. However, it’s important to note that the use of goat’s milk in skincare products is not a new fad trend, or the latest internet phenomenon, so there’s no need to worry there. Reassuringly, and amazingly, goat’s milk has been being used in skincare and to treat skin-related ailments for thousands of years.
Our use of goat’s milk for good skin can be dated all the way back to ancient times. Having since been used, Dermatologists have recognised the effectiveness of goat milk skincare and its benefits, and often recommend the treatment style to those who struggle with dry skin, or related skin conditions.
Is Goat Milk Good for Skin?
Absolutely. Low cost, simple, natural, and effective, goat milk is good for the skin in so many ways. The versatility of the product means that it can be integrated to a range of formats for both ease of use and longevity.
Another great reason to invest in goat milk skincare is the product’s low environmental impact. Unlike similar products that contain Shea butter and oil-based ingredients, locally sourced skincare products such as out goat milk range have not been transported across the world, reducing our (and your) carbon footprint! It’s a win-win.
Top Goat Milk Skin Benefits
There’s a reason that goat skincare products such as milk moisturiser, lotions, soaps, and shampoos have made their way into the mainstream beauty industry, and it’s not because people think that goats are cute (even though, that is also true).
The use of goat milk products such as goat’s milk moisturiser brings a host of skin benefits to the table and can be used all over your body, including your face, presenting the products as the perfect all-in-one skin moisturiser for all. Gentle enough for babies and tough enough for stubborn dry skin conditions. What’s not to love?
